VALENTINE, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission has installed a temporary control structure below Rat and Beaver lakes in Cherry County, part of the preparations for a rehabilitation project.

The structure will let the water levels be lowered 18 inches in both lakes.

The commission intends to improve the boat launch area and install fish barriers to prevent carp from moving into the lakes after completion of a fish renovation. Bluegill, largemouth bass, yellow perch, and black crappie will be stocked in the lakes.

The work is expected to be finished by early 2015.
